Key learning points:
- How the Jive can often be the difference between winning and losing despite often being the least thought about, least practised and least liked of all 5 dances.
- Why the dancer should not be continuously trying to balance but instead should be aiming to create a counter balance so the movement becomes easier to produce and looks more natural and controlled.
- This does NOT mean the body should be tense! Stretching the muscles and staying relaxed will give more freedom of movement.
- How the laws of physics should be thought about and applied to keep the dancer’s centre of Gravity and to keep the weight centred during each counter-balance position.
